DescriptionCultural Writing. Poetry. Gay/Lesbian Studies. The late James Laughlin of New Directions called Jonathan Williams an incomparable monument of our culture. In BLACKBIRD DUST, the latest from this prolific author, Williams delivers a series of urgent and eccentric essays, rants, interviews, poems, eulogies, and letters chronicling a love affair with the beauty of the English language and its craftspeople. In an author's note, Williams writes, BLACKBIRD DUST is another celebration of Outsiderdom...The mix, as ever, involves food, drinik, sex, sport, walking, manners, music, writers, artists, photographers -- much that has been sternly isolated and sedulously ignored. I have tried to be as companionable, jocular, and curmudgeonly as possible...Southern-fried bourgeoisophobes don't come along every day. Other Williams publications from SPD include PORTRAIT PHOTOGRAPHS, METAFOURS FOR MYSOPHOBES, and LE GARAGE RAVI DE ROCKY MOUNTAIN.
